you scribes and pharisees, hypocrites! for you cleanse the outside of the cup and dish...
but inside they are full of extortion and self indulgence... Matt 23:25.
We can pluck our eyebrows, adorn our heads, dry clean our clothes and strut around vanity
fair... we may have not a hair out of place on our head and speak like a royal but what is
the condition of our heart, clean or unclean?
Outward appearances are merely for the eyes of men and women to behold but God looks upon
the heart! It's just too easy to fool men and women, there was even a prophet of God who
was fooled by appearance at one time.
Samuel the prophet said... surely the Lord's anointed is before Him! But the Lord
said to Samuel... do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have
refused him... for the Lord does not see as man sees... for man looks at the outward
appearance but the Lord looks at the heart... 1 Samuel 16:6,7.
The message of the true prophets is always based on salvation and judgement!
We may live our lives the way we choose but there is only one way to the place called
heaven and that is through Jesus Christ the righteous. If we don't follow Jesus every
day and all the way, we will not see heaven but I will guarantee you that you will
find the eternal fire of hell. God will refuse many a well spoken, highly educated, well
behaved, neat and tidy, well liked religious people on the judgement day, all because
their heart is not right with God. They shall have an appearance of Godliness but all
their life they continually ignored the commands of God Almighty. If we shall do as our
Lord Jesus has told us to do, we shall be safe... if we ignore Jesus' words there
is no doubt... we shall be doomed to destruction, the fire of hell. Jesus Christ is
saviour and judge of the souls of the human race.. Amen.
